The whole world is interested in the metal industry and its permanent development. One of these metals is carbon steel. Therefore, scientists tend to improve the properties of this metal, in this research we have improved the properties of carbon steel through electroless plating process of Ni-P and Ni-W-P alloys. In different industries, electroless nickel-phosphorus Ni-P and nickel-tungsten-phosphorus Ni-W-P deposits have been commonly used as engineering safety coatings. In our research, Ni-P and Ni-W-P were deposited on low carbon steel by using acid bath. To study the improvement of the properties of the coats, microstructure analysis investigated by thin film (XRD), coat’s morphology by electron microscope scan (SEM), analyzing the coat by X-ray dispersive energy (EDX) and protection of corrosion of the coats were determined by potentiodynamic polarization measurements in artificial sea water (3.5% NaCl solution). The results indicated that the phases formed from the electroless coating give excellent corrosion resistance of low carbon steel and also indicated that the alloy formed in the presence of tungsten through the electroless bath give higher corrosion protection than that formed without it. As the concentration of tungstate increase in the bath, coat has higher corrosion protection i.e. Ni-W-P III>Ni-W-P II >Ni-W-P I>Ni-P.
